    Can you believe the 95 Yukon. A sweet ride with great potential but seriously, 44's on 1/2 ton sticks. The owner even admits in the article he was a fool! Also, I want to know where i can get a 85 Blazer with a D44 in front. HAHAHAHA!!

    Yeah I got mine yesterday, the 1/2 ton axles was one of the first things I noticed, it must not see alot of off-road action. It is a very cool looking ride though.

    Anyone notice the front driveshaft? The case looks like a driver side drop, but the pumpkin is on the passenger side.

    same here...I worry about running 35's with 3/4ton axles. I'm not real sure on the t-case drop my blazer has 6" lift and i've drug the case before. His has 12" lift, but 12" drop on the case great for drive lines but I bet it highcenters easy. I bet he is the ultimate pavment pounder

    How come you guys always get your mags in the mail before me? I have to sit here and listen to all you guys talk about it for a few days before I even see mine. I'm jealous.

    That's the first thing I asked myself ... why lift it 12 inches and then drop the t-case 12 inches. Kinda defeats the purpose/forums/images/icons/crazy.gif The only thing gained is he's able to run 44 inch tires so he actually only gained about 6 inches of clearance

    what's really weird about that guy and his rig is that he has CLEARLY put a lot of ca$h into it... if you're gonna go through all that trouble/ca$h why not use real axels? I guess all you can say in the guys defense is that at least he knows that he made a boo-boo...
